LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) ⎯ Kelly Rice, Ph.D., assistant professor of physical activity and health at EOU, shares her study on activity levels of children for the colloquium this Thursday, Jan. 10.
Rice measured the physical activity levels of 114 children, age two to five, attending Family Child Care Homes in seven western Oregon counties. Her results suggest preschool-age children in these homes are accumulating relatively small amounts of activity and are mostly sedentary during the child-care day.
Rice will provide additional information on the study and discuss possible interventions to increase physical activity in this population.
The colloquium begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210 and is free and open to the public. A reception with question and answer session with Rice will follow.
A list of related resources provided by EOU’s Pierce Library is available for more in-depth information on this topic. Visit library.eou.edu/colloquium. To be added to the colloquium mailing list call 541-962-3508.
